COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — A baseball player from a Michigan college was shot multiple times at Muskingum University on Friday.
The shooting happened around 7:03 p.m. near the Mose Moorehead Baseball Field.
One person was in custody in connection with the shooting less than an hour later, the Muskingum County Sheriff's Office said. That suspect has been identified as Franklin Grayson, an alumbus of Olivet College.
Sheriff Matt Lutz said a baseball player from Olivet College in Michigan was shot multiple times.
The player, who was not identified by the sheriff, was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
Muskingum University and Olivet College had a baseball game right before the shooting.
Muskingum player Mitchell Trace, who was at the field after the game, said the remaining players heard multiple gunshots and ran.
An older couple let a group of players into their home when they saw them running away from the gunshots.
When asked what was going through his mind at the time, Trace said, "panic."
Olivet College released a statement on their website Saturday morning saying the student who was shot has been treated for his injuries and released from the hospital into the care of his parents. They also noted the rest of the team is returning to Olivet College and the games initially scheduled for Saturday and Sunday have been cancelled.
On Saturday, Olivet College posted an additional update to their website identifying the suspect in this case as Franklin Grayson, an alumnus of the college.
